Build Your Own Skyrim Home

You’ve probably played through Dawnguard a couple of times now as normal and vampire and am in need of more content to satisfy your Skyrim hunger, well, unless you play it on PC and have access to all those lovely mods.

The Elder Scrolls V - SkyrimPoor console gamers don’t have that luxury and so have to settle with whatever downloadable content is made available, which is why news of the next DLC comes with both excitement and bewilderment. Just take a look at these features:

  • Choose Your Land – Choose from property in the salt marshes of Hjaalmarch, the forests of Falkreath, or the vast tundra of The Pale. For the more ambitious landowner, purchase multiple plots and start building a real estate empire.
  • Customize Your Home – Expand your home with a variety of room combinations including an armory, alchemy tower, kitchen, trophy room and more. Grow plants in your new greenhouse, cultivate slaughterfish in the fish hatchery, house your Arcane Enchanter in the enchanting tower, or display your latest conquest in the trophy room. Add additional features like stables, mills, smelters, gardens and more.
  • New Objectives and Interactions – Guard your home from unwanted visitors like marauding kidnappers, armed bandits, and skeever infestations. Turn almost any follower into your personal steward to improve and protect your home. Or if you require more help, hire a personal bard or carriage driver to ease the burdens of home ownership.
  • Adoption – Transform your house into a home with Hearthfire’s all-new adoption system. Adopt children and discover new ways to interact with your family. Play games with the kids, allow them to have pets and gain new bonuses from having a family.

Yes, you can build your own little fort. You just have to wait until September 4th until it’s released.
